19th century headbands, or “falls”. Made from an astounding variety of materials, usually to match a stylish ball gown. Earlier ones were smaller, and more subdued. As time passed and the fashion grew, these headdresses became ever more elaborate. Many of them were manufactured in Paris, the capitol of French fashion. Flowers were the most popular materials, both silk and sometimes real, paired with beads, feathers, and springy wires that wobbled whimsically when the ladies walked.

The sleeves were often very full, and might have a bell shape or be very full at the sleeve head. The shoulder seam was typically dropped slightly down from the shoulder, and the waist was often just a bit above what we would consider a natural waistline.
